Our goal for the end of this week was to be able to write a brief weather report, in Spanish, expressing the current temperature and weather conditions as well as future temperature and weather conditions.
This will feed directly into my next unit on making plans and accepting/rejecting invitations. Since the weather often dictates what types of leisure activities we may do and when/where we might do them, we will be recycling a lot of these ideas during the next lesson. But for now, we are starting with a written weather report.
Day 1: Our main activity was an interpersonal speaking/information gap style activity taken from my Integrated Performance Assessment on the Weather. Since I knew I was not going to be assessing that mode this time around, but I still wanted to practice it, I just used it as a class activity. Here is a portion of the activity so that you can see the general idea:
Day 4: We listened to the song "Hasta Que Salga el Sol" by Don Omar and practiced changing the lyrics based on the vocabulary and verb structures we had worked with during the week.
Many of the lessons used during this week are up in my store. Look for the links to find the specific products or just look at the information here - I hope it inspires a new lesson for you!
